Is this what the head is supposed to look like? (that's what she said). It seems to be a little more thick for this batch, kind of reminds me of the foam from a rootbeer float. The beer is a cherry wheat

Ya, I don't see a problem. Wheat will add head retention. Same with flaked barley, oatmeal, and carapils. Looks good!

The larger bubbles make me think you over carbonated this beer. Measure your beer amount carefully then use a priming calculator to accurately determine the amount of priming sugar to use and weigh, not measure the amount.

Or just drink it and enjoy. :p
